Boxee Box 1.1 Firmware Update: List of New Features / Improvements

Back in November last year we announced that the Boxee Box set top box had received its very first firmware update, despite the fact that the Apple TV like device had not long been out. Now Boxee has announced the new firmware update, along with a list of new features and improvements.

According to a recent article by Matt Burns, the new firmware update has brought a whole host of changes, including a massive upgrade to the browser, which now features full support for browser history, bookmarks and HTML 5 for websites such as HBOGo.

The browser’s On Screen Display (OSD) has also been updated, including the web video playback screens, which now come with more content controls. Boxee has also revamped the local video screens, by moving all the buttons to the bottom of the screen and adding a brand new scrub bar.

Other improvements include a faster browser launch and faster page loading speeds and support for additional languages including Norwegian, Finnish, French, German, Hebrew, Danish and Russian. It also adds a new MLB application, which enables users to watch both live and recorded games.

The firmware update also contains a number of bug fixes, including a fix for the issue where a signature failed message would occasionally be displayed when trying to download and install applications and a fix for the problem where the ‘Audio Offset’ setting would not work.

You can read more about the 1.1 firmware update over on the website. Do you own a Boxee Box set top box?
